your vote for romney because you're upset at obama, right? n no. i think there is a case to be made against obama. there is also a case to be made for romney. mitt romney, i have to say, among the republicans in the field, i am a democrat, but among the republicans in the primary field, romney was the only one who i thought was in the end, could be a credible alternative to obama. but as we've gotten closer, i think romney is much better than merely a credible alternative. i think his policies are sound. i think he's got a real idea how to create jobs. the other thing i like about him is that there is not a hint of scandal in this man's life. neither in his personal life, nor his career. this is an honest man full of integrity and it will be nice to have that in the white house. >> gretchen: when i interviewed hi and ann together three years ago issues they said to me then, you will never read about us in the tabloids, ever. they said it am fatticcally. listen to ryan and romney as they seem to be talking about hope and change. imagine that. >> this is a turfing point for america th

right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some good news in the form of an ohio poll we're about to put up. but couldn't really enjoy that because this "washington post" poll showing a four-point lead in virginia, that's just as bad news for republicans as the ohio poll was good news. >> i thought for a while that people were overly assuming virginia and thinking romney couldn't win ohio. in some ways ohio is a better state for him. virginia has all the big groups that are the president's base, younger voters, african-american, suburban women. i think the romney campaign might have to start thinking about a path with ohio but without virginia which is doable, but it does involve winning another big state or two to make up for that loss. >> that's what i was going to ask you. as you look at that electoral map, we've always said you've got to win ohio. ohio's going to decide it. but

needed right now in washington that people think is broken. and president obama who has glossy new brochure, when you look inside it is more of the same. bill: when you think about what the obama team did in 2008, i mean do you have to, do you have to go well beyond the numbers of 2004? and because when you talk about these voters who voted for the president four years ago and they have been disillusioned and perhaps not supporting him now, can you point to examples or concrete evidence where the obama supporters of 2008 have left him now? >> i can and it's the early voting numbers that are coming in. looks like we are overperforming in all the early voting and democrats are underperforming as compared to 2008. and we expected early voting to go more towards democrats because that is what happened in 2008. democrats like to vote early. republicans like to vote on election day. despite that we've been able to increase our numbers significantly and their numbers are down. so i think there is evidence there is less enthusiasm on their side. some of these obama supporters last time hav
is the detroit news of romney. romney 's right to say -- they criticized his policies and supported obama's policies. on the issue of the auto bailout, they supported obama. >> okay. so once again, there's truth in both ads. >> yeah. it's complicated. >> it is . i guess in many of these ads, they are stretching the truth or leaving out key facts. they are not necessarily out right lies. >> right. that's the big thing thing. you are not getting the full context. >> okay. let's go to another ad. this is going to be pro romney. this one is getting a lot of play. a woman says she went on the internet to find out what romney's views were. >> those ads say mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraceptions seemed extreme. i looked into it. turns out romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest or to save a mother's life. >> she goes on to say that besides for her it's really all about the economy. talk to me about this. is there truth in here? >> this ad is broadly speaking true. no politician is proposing to ban contraception.
the images we're looking at right there. this was wednesday, president obama and chris christie touring some of the devastated areas. yes, they came together for all the right reasons. chris christie was the keynote speaker at the republican convention. he's a key ally of mitt romney. did that image hurt the romney campaign? >> well, i'm sure that it cautioned a lot of angst backstage, and i'm sure that in the obama campaign the operatives were saying, yes, we've got chris christie at our side with these extraordinary images, but, again, both sides say we now know where the votes are. we know there are very few undecided. need to get them to polls and on time on tuesday. >> as they are working to get people to the polls, mitt romney is saying i'm the agent of change and president obama is saying you know me. you know what i'm standing for. how effective are the arguments? >> at this point i think everybody knows the arguments. i think that the country is ready to have this election over, matt, and they have pretty much made up their minds. we'll see. governor romney today is going to have ev
will be like under president obama by seeing what it is like right now. the course he has put us on, higher taxes, obamacare, cutting medicare by $716 billion, having in place a series of taxes, regulatory policies that make it harder for a small business to start, that ends up hurting and you your family. this is an election about big things, meaning whether we will have energy independence, whether america's military is strong and whether our economy will lead the world. but it is also a matter of big things in your life, in your homes. if you are a senior, friends, or, perhaps, you are caring for a senior in your home and if president obama were re-elected and you developed a medical condition that requires a medical specialist and the call the office of the specialist and the appointment secretary says, under obamacare, i'm sorry we are not taking anymore medicare patients because of the cuts that were put on medicare bio-- by obamacare, because of the cuts, half the doctors surveyed say they will not take any more patients on medicare so that is why we will repeal obamacare. and if you

this a political issue and the distinction between super pac and obama campaign would be lost on most people. i think that just the politics of this for whatever it's worth, there's nothing proactively right now that romney can do to make up the points that he trails in ohio and wisconsin and those states but if for some reason obama's response to this is bungled or botched or he's seen as politicizing it for some reason then i think there's an opportunity for romney to score. >> and one of the tremendous ironies about this political season is because the republican party acted in a way that really caused, particularly african-american voters to feel there was a lot of racial -- a lot of nasty, ugly hostility not just toward barack obama but the voters. the obama campaign wound up front-loading so much of their early vote, when i was in ohio people were amped up to get out and vote earlier than they normally would have. in florida, soles to the polls which was cut off, has already happened so the obama campaign, in large part because of the republicans have actually banked more early votes this

are right. governor kasich is right that his policies fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit. make, create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just in the raw consumer confidence numbers. you see consumer confidence trending up and the unemployment rat
